** It is an ‘Event based management system’ – from the time of dispatch till the time of deposition of election material after return of parties.
** Polling parties are distributed in remote locations, so the challenge is to get the information timely
** Events can be of predetermined nature ( e.g. Polling party dispatched, arrived etc.) or of non-predetermined nature (e.g. Incidents of violence). Both types of events need to trigger action on getting recorded into the system.
** SMS is a very easy and convenient technology that can be used for a wide range of applications. Although it has the widest reach of all the mobile technologies today.
** Incorporates Time delay option, i.e. the recipients phone being busy does not matter to the sender of SMSs.
i. Automatic sending of SMSs to the persons who are not reporting within scheduled / expected time limits.
ii. Automatic sending of SMSs to police stations, magistrates etc. on receipt of reports of events like violence etc. from polling booths, sector officers etc.
